Thank you for the story. It is very very sad.Ezo living in a foreign land, with no money and without any hope to see her hometown again, spent her years in an utter misery. It is said that because of her deep longing for her hometown, Ezo died of tuberculosis in 1956 and has since become a Turkish legend, depicted in popular films and lamented in folksongs.
I hope not only sad stories get remembered.
It reminded me of another story. It is also very sad. My late Grandmother's friend in Sofia, a lady we would often visit during the summer and eat her lovely own yard grown pears, had a daughter. The daughter had fallen in love with an Egyptian student, who came to study to Sofia. He invited her to move to Egypt. Her mother was against, as they did not really know him or his family. But daughter went. She never came back. She never wrote to her mother. Never called. Noone knows what became of her.
That was one of the scariest stories I remember from the otherwise gorgeous summers.
